Now more than ever kdramas are appealing

Since they offer a nice break from reality..so last week I wanted my niece to try watching kdramas again..and I wanted a light entertaining drama. I settled on Oh My Ghostess which I really liked when I first saw it. I think she was successfully intrigued and she even watched a bit more when she got home. Of course by then I was involved in the drama once more so I’ve been watching it again.

I’m again impressed with the versatility of Park Bo-Young..this young actress is doing such an amazing job of portraying two characters side by side. I wonder how much preparation she and Kim Seul Gi (our ghost) had together to work on the physical traits of the portrayal? How awesome is it when two actresses are called to play the same role? Fell in love once more with our egotistical, soft-hearted chef..who is bound and determined that he will not take advantage of his “manic” girlfriend but who is there to support her in all her stages.

We also have another set of ducklings here..not as close or as lovable though but still fun to watch.  I’m just happy to look forward to the zaniness each evening and can even end with a smile..that’s really important at this moment in time!!

What are you guys watching next? Let me know if you’re in the mood for another group watch!

Finished Familiar Wife

I have mixed feelings about how this one ends, but I guess that has a lot to do with how I “thought” things should go, and cause I kinda felt that Woo Jin wasn’t true to her character in one episode in particular. It was good to see that the effort on both of their parts, to approach their marriage in a completely different way held strong. There were a couple of moments where they both had the opportunity to regress, but overcame.

There were also situations and characters whose stories were left up in the air, and way too much time spent with the goings on and characters at work. I never totally understood or got a handle on the other time traveler’s story. And Woo Jin’s dad — what was the purpose of intervening there? Have to say that it’s always nice to see Jo Jung Suk tho!

Still think it’s worth the watch…

Saw My Annoying Brother a couple of days ago

And of course Jo Jung-Suk never disappoints – he does an awesome job. His character is a real jerk at the beginning of the movie but that didn’t fool me one bit – there was no doubt that circumstances would lead to change. He had a really lovely rapport with his “younger brother” and it screams through the screen that they felt very comfortable with each other.
